Tattoo Info

I'm so glad you're interested in getting a tattoo from me. Now that I am a fully licensed tattoo artist my rate will be $100 per hour for the time being. With each appointment, there will be a nonrefundable deposit of $50 required at check out that will go towards the final price of your tattoo. If you need to cancel your appointment please do so at least 48 hours beforehand or you will forfeit your deposit. I am happy to reschedule or adjust otherwise. 
My books are always open. I have a window for about 10 custom designs per season and flash will continue to be available year round. I will be dropping seasonal flash at least once a month. Thank you so much for your interest! It is my intention to reach as many folks as possible. If you have questions please email me at xoxojoypain@gmail.com

How to Book?
Flash: When you purchase flash from this website that $50 goes to your deposit. I will then email you to set up an appointment. if you do not receive an email for any reason please follow up via email. 

Custom: Please email me at xoxojoypain@gmail.com to inquire if a custom you'd like is a good fit for me. If we agree to work together you can then purchase your custom slot from this website for $50 which will go to your deposit. 

Returning: Customers that are returning for color or additional work on an existing tattoo by me can also purchase that slot on this website.

What is Flash?
Flash is used to describe ready-to-go tattoos that can be tattooed in full color or fully realized black and grey (no linework only please).

What is Custom?
Custom is used to describe a tattoo that you and I will agree upon via email and make a design based on your ideas! 

These are first come first served. There are a limited number of original flash designs and 10 custom spots that will be available every season. I do not repeat tattoos. Every tattoo is one of a kind. There is a very high demand for tattoos right now and at Merci, we are still tattooing at a reduced capacity to keep everyone safe and healthy. 
I reserve the right to refuse to tattoo certain flash designs if it doesn’t feel culturally specific to you. Some flash will be clearly made for specific demographics only, I ask you to respect that wish if stated.  Some tattoos can be adjusted depending on the design. My intention is to create tattoos that center BIPOC folks.

Lots of gratitude, 
Joy Pain
